As preparations begin for the coming contest season and for the Christmas programme, there’s still time for the Syston Summer Fayre. This year the band will be performing in the Arena, as well as manning their justifiably famous tombola stall. There will also be a selection of instruments available for prospective learners to try.
The band is delighted that bass player Ben Gormley has taken on the role of Bandmaster and the committee is delighted to welcome him as part of the band management team.
